VIDEO: The First Ascent of Gambler’s Fallacy (5.13b) on Long’s Peak, CO

Dangling thousands of feet in the air on a big wall free climb might not be everyone's cup of tea, but based on the success of films like Meru and Free Solo it seems safe to say that a lot of people like watching other people do it. With that in mind, we're happy to share this video documenting Chris Weidner and Bruce Miller's first ascent of Gambler's Fallacy (5.13b), a 9-pitch climb high on Colorado's 14,255-foot Long's Peak.

The duo spent the previous few summers figuring out the climb, and estimated that they'd spent around 50 days in total working towards a first ascent. After so much effort on such an ambitious route, it seems appropriate to have a high production value video celebrating the occasion. Congratulations to Weidner and Miller!

Rock climbing has gone from a niche sport to a fairly mainstream pastime over the past decade, and many old-guard climbers have seen their formerly quiet crags fill up with an influx of new climbers. RELATED: Check out the TGR Journal Vol. 1 There's nothing wrong with a sport gaining popularity, necessarily, but most people would agree that a sense of continuity is important in the community, especially when land-use ethics and responsible recreation practices are so critical.

Colby Raha and Vicki Golden’s X-Games Real Moto 2020 Entries Are Mental

We know that freestyle motocross usually doesn’t grace the front page of TGR, but holy sh** you have to watch these two entries from X-Games Real Moto 2020. First of all, Colby Raha might still be in the air from those jumps he’s hitting in his entry. Will somebody please check? We’re worried about him. Any guess on how big that air was? Secondly, Vicki Golden is absolutely on one in her entry, with textbook execution and style of some massive tricks. Golden has been a driving force of
